Fully offline turn-by-turn navigational system, designed to be used in the car

Navigon is a turn-by-turn navigational system, similar to Google Maps. It's unique in that it's a "real" GPS app - instead of accessing the maps over 3G like Google Maps, you anticipate where you're going in advance and download the detailed map of that area. That way, even if you drop off the grid, the app keeps directing you like nothing's happened.

The interface is solid, and the voice prompts are loud enough to be heard over mild car noise.

However, I'd only recommend purchasing this rather expensive app if you plan on spending quite a lot of time driving somewhere with no signal. Getting access to live traffic updates isn't free (it's included in Google Maps, plus other comparable navigational systems), and you'll also have to pay to re-download maps when they're updated. Honestly, it's a decent enough navigational system, but the price of Navigon feels really out of line with where free technology is these days.

- This version requires approx. 1,2GB of free memory. Please ensure you have sufficient available mass-storage space (SD card). The map material must be downloaded after installing the app via wireless Internet on the smartphone. Please ensure a reliable and safe connection is available.
- On first startup a short data connection (ca. 25kB) is required to register your product

Whether in the car, by bike or on foot, NAVIGON hopes you have fun navigating.

    Been using it for 3 years on different devices worked well on all of them. Only negative thing I have to say is that the volume of the Navigator gets drowned out if you're playing music from the phone at the same time and the maps don't update as frequent

    For some inexplicable reason it kills my WiFi when looking for updates. Once I exit Navigon, WiFi comes back up.

    As in NAVIGON questions and answers, and just called them, too, Navigon uses the languate of the device. My Acer Iconia tablet is in English, not sure if can get that in Finnish, but in any case I want to have the tablet in English. Now, Navigon pronounce

    Outdated map data, and no way to lock out road segments in these outdated maps so the route is actually usable. By outdated I mean 5-10 years. My address where I've lived for 10 years doesn't exist. Not able to connect with wifi. Just keeps telling me the
